Fewer people trying to worm their way through the store means less chaos. Forever 21 is one of those stores that you’re probably used to casually popping into during the afternoon, but you’re much more likely to walk out of there with cuter stuff and better deals if you take an early morning trip.
But just because you get there early doesn’t mean you won’t face challenges. If you really want to get ahead of the game, fashion consultant Lauren Finney recommends browsing the Forever 21 website to narrow down your shopping list before you go. “I will pre-shop online if I know I am looking for something specific,” she says. “Then I print it out and show it to a store associate in the morning” who can show her exactly where it is in the store.
I am so doing this before my next trip to Forever 21.
